Eastside Park is a residential neighborhood in the Eastside of Paterson, New Jersey east of downtown. Once the home of the city's industrial and political leaders, the neighborhood experienced a significant downturn as industry fled Paterson. In recent years, people have begun moving back into the neighborhood and are restoring some of the area's historic houses. The Eastside Park Historic District, a state- and nationally-registered historic place, is situated in this neighborhood. The jewel of the neighborhood is Eastside Park and the mansions that surround it. In addition, this section of Paterson once had a large Jewish population and there is still a synagogue left. Eastside Park and what is commonly known as the Manor Section are located in Paterson's 3rd Ward. [3] The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places on July 7, 2004.
